towards hawaii and maybe even toward the south coast of south america but a significant portion of this wave propagating toward the western coast of the u.s. i have seen a 12-inch wave in crescent city become a five foot wave because of the way the crescent beach is shaped. this could happen in any of those beaches along the west coast of the u.s. it's about an hour to an hour and a half away. we know that by the colors of the bands and how many hours it would take. it took about 7 1/2 hours from the quake and the disturbance to get to hawaii. if you look at the lines, that's another hour to get to about van kurve and maybe an hour and a half to get to seattle, portland, and then all of those coastal cities up and down the oe east coast a lot of sirens are going off on the west coast. that means you must get to higher ground. i know a five foot wave doesn't sound like much but when it comes on shore from charleston to crescent city at 7:23 a.m. and san francisco 8:00 pacific standard time two hours away but you have time. when that five foot wave comes on shore it has so much fo
